    I picked up some G1 items from a local today and in the box were these oddities. I believe a couple are GoBots and one is a vintage Star Wars space ship? What do you guys think?

    I can tell you the two on the top left are an arm and leg to Voltron, and the one on the top right is a Headmaster whose name escapes me.

    Top two are Voltron figures. Top middle is an obscure toy. Top right looks like Mindwipe. The bottom row all look like Gobot figures, like that second in from bar bottom right.

    I think the bugs and possibly the bat are from an old line called insectors or something like that.

    Yeah, here...

    They are convertors, the insectors are a subgroup. The bat belons to the avarian subgroup.

    The white pl;ane in the corner and the grey submarine are knockoff Gobots I think, Water Walk and Dive Dive respectivly, the other jet looks like a knockoff of Leader-1. The grey guy between Dive Dive and Water Walk looks like Orguss. The Helicopter looks like another Gobot maybe
    Warpath or Wrong Way.

    I can understand being in the dark on most of them but...

    That's VOLTRON you unwashed heathen! Now say you're sorry and promise to Google it to educate yourself and we might let you off the hook. ;)

    The white jet isn't a gobot. I recognize that line. It's from a line called "motorbots" They were inexpensive, usually all had roughly the same transformation, and had diecast chests. The main feature of the line is a slot that holds a small coilspring motor (pull back type) that could be removed and used in both vehicle and robot mode.


    I know of that one as well as a steam train engine (my personal favorite), and a yellow pickup truck in that line. They were usually sold in grocery stores rather than toy stores and were inexpensive. (thus why I owned them as a kid since they were so much cheaper than TFs or even gobots)

    Almost no one seems to know about them and I can't find any information websites. Not even sure what company made them.

    Given the lack of collectors for them I doubt they're worth anything but they're a rare find none the less.

    Sorry, I should have clarified that I already plucked the Transformers from the lot. The G1's were Reflector (100% complete), Metroplex (100% complete), Scorpnok (100% complete), etc, etc.

    Are any of the items in the pic worth anything? That Star Wars piece is from the 1970's.

    The one in his picture is a bootleg. The Cessna Robo has much darker blue legs.

    The Dive-dive is also a bootleg. The orange Gobot truck is the real thing, missing the crane. The helicopter isn't a Gobot I think, the rotor is wrong (there are no small Gobots with 5 rotor blades).

    The F-15 is made by MC toy and was released under different names.
